So I was out shopping at Staples and found these...
Yes they are Sharpie markers, and they are made for fabric! I thought, why not try drawing with them in the Silhouette? So I did! They fit in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder. You have to make sure you are using a sticky mat so the fabric doesn't move or bunch up. The directions say they are machine washable on cold, and you should hang dry.
I drew this flower and then colored it in with different colored Sharpie Stained markers. I left my fabric on my mat for coloring, it was easier and didn't move on me.
I had to play around with my settings. The faster speeds left a thinner line (think 4 or 5, not too fast) while the slower speeds left a thicker line (1,2,3). This was just me playing around! I used a thickness of just 1. Don't want to much pressure, these are brush tip markers.
